Meet and Greet the Candidates running for Justice of the 5th District Court of Appeals. The court of appeals protects the Rule of Law; therefore, it is crucial that we elect conservative justices in order to keep America strong and safe and free. We will ask them to explain the functions of the court. The Fifth District Court of Appeals has appellate jurisdiction over appeals arising from district and county courts in the 6 counties of Dallas (constitutional seat), Collin, Grayson, Hunt, Rockwall, and Kaufman. We want you to get to know the justices since this election we cannot vote straight party but must select each candidate.
